Carbondale Fire Department to install smoke detector batteries for disadvantaged
Daylight-saving time ends Sunday, November 2 and the Carbondale Fire Department reminds residents to change their smoke detector batteries.
Nov. 2 marks the 27th anniversary of the "Change Your Clock Change Your Battery" program, sponsored by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs along with the City of Carbondale Fire Department.
This program reminds to change and test the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. It is simple and the habit can be lifesaving.
The City of Carbondale Fire Department will provide and install at no charge a smoke detector for any disadvantaged person's home in Carbondale.
Our department will also provide free replacement detector batteries to our citizens that cannot afford to purchase one.
They encourage residents to participate.
